MyCase launches ‘Dropbox replacement’ MyCaseDrive

US web-based legal practice management software vendor MyCase has launched desktop document management solution MyCaseDrive, which automatically syncs documents between desktop and MyCase.

All documents are automatically backed-up in the cloud and synced between desktops and MyCase, removing the need to upload or download files in different locations. According to MyCase, Drive is the ideal replacement for law firms using Dropbox, and includes unlimited storage.

Users can save or drag and drop files directly to a case folder and organize those case folders by client, practice area, or stage. MyCase customer and family law attorney Jennifer Joyce Tompkins, whose law offices are of that name, is quoted as saying: “On a weekly basis, we probably save 6-8 hours using MyCase Drive.”

MyCase Drive will be added to the Advanced pricing plan to accommodate the growing needs of MyCase customers.

“MyCase is continually innovating and honing its tools to make matter and document management even easier and more efficient for law firms,” said Jim McGinnis, CEO of MyCase. “We leveraged customer feedback and learned that streamlined document management is essential for law firms. In response, we developed MyCase Drive, an all-encompassing, seamless document management solution.”

The announcement comes as MyCase prepares to roll out legal accounting, following the acquisition of Soluno in November 2021. The company also in November announced the acquisition of practice management system for personal injury firms, CASEpeer and legal document automation provider Woodpecker.

MyCase was acquired by leading private equity investor Apax Partners in 2020.
